Recaro Performance SPORT Combination Harness to Booster Car Seat Review & Giveaway!!!


We love the Recaro brand for car seats and we have 2 ProRIDE convertible car seats by Recaro that my kids use everyday.  I recently had the chance to choose a Recaro car seat to review and I chose the Recaro Performance SPORT Combination Harness to Booster Car Seat.  Both of my little ones are peanuts and lightweights, so they are fine in the ProRIDE convertible car seats,but I figure at some point my older son is going to move to the booster and this booster seems perfect.  I like that it has a secure harness that is easy to buckle him in and out of, the seat is really nice and comfortable and easy to clean fabric is used.  I chose the Knight color style because I think it goes well in my car and will not show dirt or soil easily.

The seat is very supportive and comfortable with memory foam in the seat that’s great if my son falls asleep on long trips. This seat has impressive side impact protection that is designed to distinctly protect 5 vulnerable areas of a child in a side impact collision – their head, neck, face, torso and pelvis. The color coded belt guide makes it easy to find the proper path and positioning  of the LATCH strap or vehicle seat belt whether used in harness or booster mode.  The 5 Point Harness and head restraint are adjusted together so no re-threading is necessary to properly position the harness shoulder straps to your child. The one-of-a-kind racing-inspired white stripe, clearly visible on the outside edge of the 5-point harness, alerts parents to improper harness alignment. There are mesh stretchable pockets on each side that can hold toys or sippy cups.  It is easy to attach in and out using my latch system in my van and I feel good knowing my son is in such a safe seat.  If you are in the market for a harness to booster car seat, you should take a look at the Recaro Performance Sport Combination Harness to Booster Car Seat!

I wasn’t sure how long the new seat would last us, and by looking at the blog it’s one hundred and twenty lbs which would last us YEARS! What a great investment into safety!

    • And I didn’t realize there was actual rules to what I commented. I learned something in the very 1st line I read! I didn’t know Recaro had been in business for over 100 years! That’s an impressive history of safety devices!

  49. Julie

    We’ve had Recaro seats since my little guy turned 1 and I love them!

  50. Amanda Selenke

    love that it fits up to 120lbs!!

  51. We actually have one of these on order, but we need two as we have twins! I love all the colors and these are the ONLY carseats my father-in-law will let us buy as he is an accident reconstruction specialist… meaning, he sees the aftermath of car accidents and wants his grandkids as safe as possible!
    Not sure what else I can learn from their website as this will be the 4th of theirs we’ve owned! I’d like to know what exactly is the HERO technology though, I couldn’t find an explanation.

  52. Katie

    I love that the child can be in the seat for so long! We are needing to purchase new seats for both cars for our new little one…would love one of these!

  53. Meredith

    I love the Recaro car seats, the padding is easy to clean and keeps cool in the Texas heat. Although bigger then other carseats, it is safety that matters.

  54. Arly

    Recaro also makes race car seats! 🙂

  55. Marysa

    I love that it has side impact protection and goes up to 120 lbs! This would be great for my 6 year old, I want her to have something with a 5 point harness.

  56. chris calderon

    I learned that one of the features is the side impact. Not all car seats has this valuable feature. After getting in a car accident and hit from the side, this seems so important!

    I learned that RECARO is the pioneer of child seat side impact technology

  61. JoAnna

    We love RECARO seats! We also really love the Performance Booster

  62. Rachel Reichart

    We love Recaro seats! My son has the convertible and has newly become a ‘car sick kid’, so I’ve had to wash the cover a few times. Now that I know he can’t play with things like my phone while we drive, I’d love to have a fresh start with a new seat, and he’s big enough to have a forward-facing harness-to-booster seat now. Thanks!

  63. Jenny

    I didn’t realize all the amazing safety features that make the Recaro look so easy to use! I would love one for my 4 y/o who I still plan to harness for a long time and I have another baby on the way!

  64. Charla

    I would love to have this seat for my daughter so she can stay harnessed longer. I know the recaro would keep her safe and she would like the headrest for sleeping in the car and I like the added side impact protection.

  65. Kari Heiting

    The company started over a hundred years ago in 1906 manufacturing seats for race cars & high performance cars.

  66. Giselle

    My daughters been a recaro baby since birth! Glad to learn the booster will accommodate up to 120lbs!

  67. Carmen Parra

    Thank you for doing this review. My son will be 3 in a few days, and I can’t tell you enough how much I love the Recaro ProSport. It’s well built and it feels safe, there is not better felling than peace of mind when I put him in it. My other son is 1, and I’ll be definitely buying (maybe winning one) for him. I learned about the Safety Stripe System, it alerts parents of improper alignment. -CP

  68. Shawna

    What a great seat! It would last until he was out of it!

  69. Giselle

    My daughters been a recaro baby since birth! Glad to know the booster will accommodate up to 120lbs!

  70. Lauren Wagner

    I learned about the harness system that prevents straps from twisting. The HERO system seems like a very good idea, especially for me active toddler.

  71. Jeri

    My special needs grandson is 3 but barely weighs 25 lbs. He doesn’t want to ride in a “baby” seat since his 5 y/o step brother gets to ride in a “big boy” seat. This would solve that problem. I don’t think he would throw such a fit about having to use the ‘straps’ instead of a seat belt with this seat. Also the memory foam would make a much more comfortable ride.

    • Jeri

      I love the side protection for more than just the head. My little one needs that chest protection for his delicate heart. Interesting how the company has developed over the years from airline seats, racing seats and into child protection seats. Also the depth of the base of the seat is still acceptable for vehicle seats even with all the other safety features built on top.

  72. RECARO Child Safety Booster Seats Receive BEST BET Rating for Fifth Consecutive Year from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

  73. Koren

    I have a high back booster for my 8 year old .. would love to get this for my 2 year old once he can FF!!

  74. Laura

    We love our Recaro!!!!!! I wish I discovered it sooner with my oldest!!!!!

    I had no idea Recaro also designed race car technology. It will be a great example for my theatrical design class about crossovers between disciplines and borrowing design solutions from other areas to solve problems in storytelling design.

  76. toni colpitts

    I love that you can harness to 90 lbs and booster to 120!! I would love this seat.

  77. Jamie Griswold

  79. learned that this seat will work for a child until they reached 120 pounds.:)

  80. christina p

    The performance ride also looks like a great seat but I love the features of the sport. Some things i learned about it are it has enhancing memory foam “this is awesome” . In booster mode it goes up to 120lbs, I would have this seat for ever as my little guy will just be in the 30lb range. Fingers crossed I would love this seat, grat safety features. And we need one bad, we are currently borrowing on from a friend. Thank you

  104. Bonnie Cantrell

    I learned about their past as makers of Racecar seats and about the Safety Stripe system

    I love the Riley color on the ProRide

  105. Cassandra

    I love the Performance Ride convertible in Rose.

  115. Jenna M

    We just bought a second carseat for the husband’s vehicle, and I see our carseat has a rear-facing child weight limit starting as light as 5lbs! That means this next bundle of joy due on Christmas will happily ride along side his brother in a Recaro seat as well as his first car ride! =)

  116. Autumn

    I love that Racaro Car Seats are built with superior protection technology. Nothing makes a mother more comfortable then knowing that their child is safe! I am paranoid when it comes to driving or being in a vehicle, so having a car seat that is safe makes me feel better. My boyfriend loves Racaro and has been talking about buying one for a while. Now that our daughter has outgrown her infant car seat, it’s time for a new one. I really love the Rose colored seat, but the knight color being given away is the same one that he has been wanting because it matches his car! If my family is chosen to win this seat we would be very grateful and I will have one happy guy on my hands! 🙂

  117. Candy Stephenson-Otoya

    I learned its made in the USA!!!!

  118. Jenny

    Love everything Recaro, their seats are the best!

  119. I chose Recaro for my nephew because I had it with my daughters already they’re protected since day one . I can’t look at any other car seats the way I experienced safety of Recaro child seats, the engineering and comfortable it is. It will last you longer than other brands in the market and save you money in a long run.

  120. Amy

    I like the performance ride as well. but this seat looks awesome in saphire!

  121. Amanda Geer

    I love that it goes to 90# harnessed!!

  135. Emma Ripley

    The recaro performance sport accommodates children up to 120 pounds, the straps adjust automatically when the headrest is adjusted, meaning much less fiddling and peace of mind. It fits really snug using the latch system and the memory foam ensures comfort particularly on long journeys where children can sleep comfortably. my son loves his race car seat, I wouldn’t trust any other brand!

  136. Cindy

    We’ve had Recaro seats in our vehicles for 8 years now!

  137. LMP

    Recaro Carseats Rock!

  138. Corey

    I have been wanting to get one of these for the past 3 weeks or so. Just haven’t had the money with the holidays coming. Actually was going to use tax money to purchase. It would be great to win one for my daughter. Been looking for a booster that will keep her in the harness for as long as possible. She knows how to unbuckle the cars seatbelt so we cant use a reg belt positioning booster and she thinks its funny to take her arm out of the strap. Good luck to me!!

  139. michelle

  144. Visiting the site reinforced this is the seat I want to use again for #2

  152. Tamra

    I have always wanted a RECARO!! My daughter would love the Performance SPORT!

  154. lisa

    I appreciate the high safety standards upheld by Recaro. Their extensive history in race cars boosts my confidence in them that they know what they’re doing. I like the performance ride as well. Good seat!
